Specialties

Dr. James R Garb has the following 1 specialty

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Great service for a sick child!

I just had an appointment for a sick little girl, and I found the office staff and Dr Garb to by very accommodating. As this strept throat came on quickly I called and talked to the receptionist and she was very helpful and got my daughter an appointment within 2 hours! We are all doing well now, and I am very grateful to Dr Garb and his staff.

Unfriendly office

The receptionist at Dr Garb's office acts like she is too good to take the time to help you. Cuts you off and hangs up abruptly. Very rude behavior. Dr Garb seems to be a good doctor but leaves a lot of bedside manner to be desired. He comes across as very unfriendly to me.

great doctor

He is a great doctor!He doesn't treat you like you are stupid if you have a question. He never questions a mothers instinct, if she believes there is something wrong. He saved my life as a kid when I developed a rare disease! Other doctors couldn't figure out what was wrong and misdiagnosed me several times.
